BONAPARTE TALKS ON ANARCHY loaie .Ueaaarea Advaaeed for the Sappreaaloa of the , Evil. CUMBERLAND. Md., Aug. 12. Secretary of the Navy tj'harle J. Hnna parte deliv ered an address this evening st the Alle gheny Chautauqua, nedr Cumberland, be fore a large gathering;, his subject being: "Anarchism and Its Remedy." He said. In part: There wa and Is much to bp snfd In favor of thow; restrictions on Immigration which are Intended to shut out foreign anarchists from our shores, and II was undoubtedly well to arm the federal executive with wider powers to deport or otherwise rid the country of disloyal or turbulent aliens, whether thone call themselves "anarchist" or not. The fewer of such people we hve In our midst the better, snd. although I do not believe it will ever prove practicable to slam the door In the face of anything like all of them, all that we can bar out will be so much gain. But. while we may thus reduce the number of our anarchists, it Is sadly certain that we cannot thus get rid of anarchism. We hsve now a home made brand of the article, and, although the original "plnnt" of this "Infant Indus try" was undoubtedly Imported, the do mestic product Is large enough to gravely trouble us. It Is sometimes ssld that anarchism and socialism, as systems, sre mutually antip odal and destructiye. 1 should be very sorry to diminish whatever hostility the adherents of either "system" may feel for i other, for the old adage as to the con ' ences of such strife to honest men -Mes no small measure of truth: but, w mind, this view of their relations fd 'her superficial. They are two dl- tm growing from the same root, 'i the doctrine that all men of rig. iff A be, and should therefore be mad. ept, precisely ennui. 9o K .t or the evil: How can It be cured? lf we mean cured In a day, a month, a year, a decade, I answer un hesitatingly, not at all. Anarchy will not be removed wl'.hln a given time, or throuah a special measure or set of measures, per hxa will not be wholly removed In any time or by any means. In the first place, the unlawful acts prompted by anarchism should be made crimes. Insofar as they are not, strictly speaking, crimes already, and, as crimes, they should be visited wHth such penalties as sre particularly distasteful to the crim inals and therefore the most Ineffective deterrants to crime. In dealing with a convicted anarchist two facts may well be remembered, the chances of his resl re formation are so small that they may be safely neglected, and we can appeal, for practical purpoaee, to but one motive on his part to discourage a repetition of his offence, namely, the fear of physical pain and death. On anarchists the death penalty should be unequivocally Imposed by law and In flexibly executed whenever the prisoner has sought directly or indirectly, to take Ufa; for offences of less gravity, I advise a comparatively brief, but very rigorous Imprisonment, characterised by complete seclusion, deprivation of all comfort and denial of any form of distraction, and which could be, to my mind, advantage ously supplemented by a savere, but not a public whipping: the lash, of all punish ments, most clearly shows the culprit that he Buffers for what his fellow men hold odious and disgraceful, and not merely for reasons of public policy. An abridgment from fear of the anarch ists of that freedom of speech and of the rress guaranteed us by our state and ederal constitutions would be neither a wise nor a worthy policy; but theee privll egee in nowise shield councilors of crime nor instigators of disorder and rebellion.

VAJa, " NICHOLAS DECLINES PLACE Grand Duke Does Not resin to Be Com mander of the Army. - SVEABORG MUTINELRS ARE CONVICTED Two Officers and Five Privates Seateaeed ta Be Shot at tha First Sitting of the C oort ' Martial. 8T. PETERSBURG, Aug. lt-Orand Duke Nicholas Nlcholalevltch, the Associated Press is Informed by a member of his En tourage, has declined to accept the poet of commander-in-chief of all the troops of the empire, "where martial law exists," which was tendered to him August 4. Whether this was decided before or after the attempt on the life of the grand duke at Krasnoyae-Selo on August 10 Is not known, but the ostensible reason Is that Grand Duke Nicholas believes such a poet should not be given to a grand duke but to a purely military man. He advocates the appointment of General Linevltch, for merly commander-in-chief of the Man churlan army, but the emperor has not finally decided the matter. Today, the second birthday of the ctare vltch, was observed with the usual display of flags and illuminations, but there was no enthusiasm In the celebration. In fact few persons seemed even to know what was the occasion of the decorations. The day was quiet In the capital. The activity of the terrorists' In the provinces Include, besides the usual harvest of assas sinations in Warsaw, an attempt on the life of eQneral Karateleff, chief of the gen darmeries of Samara province, and the wounding of Captain of Police Ivan off of Libau by a youth who fired thrloe at him In the street. The assailant of General Karateleff mounted the stairs of the gen eral's chancellory and threw a bomb at random. The missile failed to explode and the miscreant escaped in spite of hot pur suit. Governor of Warsaw Relieved. General Btrljoff, acting governor general of Warsaw city and province, has been re lieved of his office and will be succeeded by General Von Lanky. It Is conjectured that the change Is due to General Strl JofTs order with reference to the, responsi bility of towns, wbfch General Bkallon, be fore his transfer to Helslngfors as gov ernor general of Finland, waa obliged to cancel. The police today surprised thieves as they ware entering a priest's house In Dol goroukoffsky street, a fight ensued, and the thieves escaped after killing two policemen and wounding a passerby. iTMkorg Matlneers sentenced.

She has climbed Sagamore hill on foot several times only to be turned away by the secret service men.

When usher James Duffy requested her to relinquish this seat she refused. Duffy forcibly removed her to the roar of the church and MlssEsaa says he tore her gown In so doing. Per this act she later applied for a warrant for Duffy but was refused.' In the rear of the church Miss Eaca refused to sit down. A seoret ser vice agent stood behind her and during tha service she made no less thsn a dosen attempts to get past him. As the presl- k rvioe men surrounaea hiss ixio out sne shouted: "Mr. President, Mr. President, President Roosevelt, wont you speak to me a moment." The president turned his head as he passed but he did not pause. Miss Esac says her watch chain was broken in this sorlmmage with the secret service men and her watch fell to the floor.

IS FOR BRYAN Prominent Democrat Reveals Bitch oock-Tlbbles Alliance to Knock the Peerless Leader. MAT GO TO CONGRESS, Gilbert M. Hltchqock. editor of the Omaha World Herald and for years an associate of William Jennings Bryan, has been elected a member of the committee In charge of the reception to be tenderd to Mr. Bryan at the Madison Square Gar den, New York, on his return from Europe. Mr. Hitchcock says he cannot attend the reception, because he desires to be present at the congressional convention of the Second Nebraska district August 30. It is possible that Mr. Hitchcock will be nominated to Congress. This dipping is from the Fourth Estate of New .Tork. It wac shown to a promi nent democrat of Omaha yesterday and he smiled and said: ."Tea, b"; those people are fooled if they think the only thing that keeps HHoboock from going to New York and aiding in the reception to Bryan Is his desire to at tend the (Congressional convention. Ho .Is anxious enough to attend that convention, of course, bat Hitchcock Is always looking out for Hitchcock and nobody . else but welcoming Bryan Is the last thing In the world he want to do and this convention furnishes a fine excuse. They never heard of that immortal 'Sting of Ingratitude,' I reckon. They never heard that while pre tending to support Bryan through the col umns of his paper, Hitchcock is furnishing transportation to Tom Tibbies to go down to Topeka and urge tbe populist convention in Kansas to stick to th 'middle of the road and not be led off by Bryan. Tou see, . those fellows In the east don't- know so much about these things as we do at home. We know that Tibbies, who la railing against Bryan, has his office In the World-Herald office and has been editing some sort of pop sheet which Hitchcock Is back of and we also know that June 23, Tibbies got transportation from a cer tain road in Omaha on 'account of the World-Herald and went to St. Louis and also to Topeka and made speeches against Bryan. , ' "Oh, yes, we know these things. We know, you bet, that Hitchcock is lying awake nights trying to figure out new ways to boost Mr. Bryan. ' Mr. Bryan knows f." CHINESE TO BE PROTECTED Government te Sogervlse the . Con " tracts Between Agents and the Laborers. WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 12. Care will be taken by the United States government to prevent contractors from doing injustice to the Chinese laborers employed for work on the Panama canal. The specifications advertising for proposals to supply 2,900 Chinese to the canal commission will stip ulate that the secretary of war shall have the privilege of passing on contracts which labor f gents make with Chinese who are to be sent to the Isthmus. . This provision will meke It possible for Secretary Taft to prevent discrimination against the coolies by unscrupulous contractors. Un der this arrangement the United States will know exactly what the Chlneee are paid by the labor agents and the Chinese gov ernment will be able to afford its subjects protection on the Isthmus because of tha ease with which this government will; be able to regulate the relations between the Chlneee laborers and the contractors. Some labor agents believe that with the many restrictions . the canal commission purposes placing on contractors. It will not be able to supply the Chinamen at lesa than H a day. Other agents are of the opinion that the eoollee can be supplied for 60 or 00 cents a day with a fair margin of profit to the contractors. Salelde Dae te Flaaaetal Treable. KANSAS CITY. Mo..

Instructed for McBrlen No Instructions on candidates.. 127 The table here given shows the line up of the delegates to the coming republican state convention so far and by-comparison with the table . printed a week ago, tells the story of the weekn changes. The close approach of the convention, now only ten days off, is indicated by the fact that (91 delegates, out of the total of 8S7, have al ready been chosen, leaving only IS still to be elected. Of the delegates so far commissioned kit have been Instructed as to the preference of their constituents for United States sen ator, while 308 ars unlnstructed . on sen ator although of these all but 127 arc In structed for candidates for some other of fice. The results of what has been called Norrts Brown's . field i day . last Monday brought him Into the lead in point of sup port, raising his list of Instructions from 110 to 213. The Rosewater - column - was carried up during. the week by .instructions tn Knox for half the delegation, with the rest of it to followi and second choice in structions in Washington county. '..The In dian land ring In Thurston .county came out for Millard, while Currle also secured two votes in one - of - the smaller counties. D. Crounse was Injected ss a stalking horse for Millard in Washington county. 'Outside' of the senatorshlp, Sheldon tot governor nas gone - to 107. - - Weston: made his debut with the five votes of his home county.- Frontier county brought out Sen ator Wllsey for lieutenant governor, and Clay county 'introduced Representative Caldwell for railway commissioner.' Railroads Against Semination. The maneuvers in a number of the county conventions showed that the railroad poli ticians are still clinging to the plan of preventing Instructions and using the un lnstructed delegates to vote down the whole proposition for convention nomination of a candidate for senator. The railroad co horts have been playing for unlnstructed delegations 'wherever possible, and where unable to avoid Instructions, . they have been trying to pack the delegations with men who can be used for other purposes and voted to down action by the. conven tion on the senatorshlp altogether. To combat the railroad program, resolutions have been adopted in a large number of counties not Instructing for a preferred candidate for senator, binding the delegates not only to vote for the nomination of a senator In convention, but" also to vote against any change in the order of nomina tions as provided for in the call, or any other slelght-of-hand trick by which the senatorshlp might be sidetracked. It is essenttnl to protect the right of the people to a voice In the selection of their senator that .resolutions of similar Import be adopted by all the county conventions yet to be held, Irrespective of their action in structing for some ' particular candidate. The activity of agents of Senator Millard la connection with the railroad runners In dicates that concerted work Is being done to carry out thia part of the corporation program, and that extra vigilance is nec essary on the part oft the people to pre vent its consummation. The Convention Calendar. The list of convention dates for the period remaining, prior to the meeting in Lincoln, is as follows, embracing all the counties that have not yet spoken, with the excep tion of Blaine, Hooker, Logan and Wheeler, each having two delegatea, which have not called formal conventions: August 1J Pierce at Plalnvlew.'..,.
